    Roald Dahl's wickedly dark and devilish children's stories have sold over 55 million copies in the UK alone, so it's no wonder they continue to inspire and entertain generation and generation.

    The Witches is one of his most entertaining, yet disturbing, reads. The inspiration for a hit film starring Anjelica Huston, it reveals to young readers how Witches really are a detestable breed. They disguise themselves as lovely ladies, but secretly they want to squish and squelch all the wretched children they despise.

    Luckily one boy and his grandmother know how to recognise the vile creatures, but can they get rid of them for good? With Quentin Blake's iconic artwork also featured, The Witches surely ranks amongst Dahl's finest work.

    Boggis is a chicken farmer who only eats boiled chickens smothered in fat; Bunce is a duck-and-goose farmer whose dinner gives him a beastly temper; and Bean is a turkey-and-apple farmer who only drinks strong cider... however, none of them are all that smart so is it any surprise the clever Mr Fox is always creeping down the valley and helping himself to their food? When he hears of their plan to Bang-Bang-Bang shoot him dead, Mr Fox comes up with a thoroughly fantastic plan.

    Fast paced and full of brilliant characters, the story is (of course) accompanied by Quentin Blake's iconic illustrations.

    With a phizz-whizzing new cover to mark 100 years of Roald Dahl, this is the story of a foul and smelly couple known as The Twits.

    Mr Twit has bits of cornflake and sardine in his beard, while his wife Mrs Twit is a horrible old hag with a glass eye. When they're together, they are probably one of the nastiest couples you're likely to meet. They love to play awful pranks on each other, too.

    The Twits are such a nasty couple that they keep Muggle-Wump the monkey and his family locked in a cage on their garden. But they haven't bet on the monkeys making a plan to trick them...

    One of Dahl's funniest stories, the story is accompanied by Quentin Blake's iconic illustrations.

    Boy, Roald Dahl's bestselling autobiography, is full of hilarious anecdotes about his childhood and school days - and is, of course, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

    You'll hear tales of horrible school bullies and the motor-car accident when Roald's nose was nearly sliced clean off... Roald Dahl vividly shares his memories; some are funny. Some are painful. Some are unpleasant. All are true
